"My wife’s school district CMS is forcing her to return in January"


          

and I don’t like that shit.

Cases going up, it’s a performing arts school.. but the kids can’t take dance classes because of Covid.

so the principle has put in some crazy ass protocol that forces all teachers to return because they need the bodies to enforce the guidelines. Which means all teachers are essential even though with doctors orders to teach remotely.

Shit like enforcing end monitoring:
1 bathroom open on each floor
Kids can’t take bathroom breaks without supervision
Hallways and stairwells that go in one direction
Kids have temp checks before entering the building
Walking around with a trash can so kids can throw their trash in it at lunch
separation of a kid feels sick


and a whole bunch of their shit that basically has my wife acting like a CO or a nurse. I’m hopping the spike will push things back but they seem determined to get these kids back in school so parents can go back to work. Our kids don’t have daycare right now cause.. you know, COVID!!!

She’s worried, I’m nervous and will prolly have to work from home with these kids in January.

They've already pushed start date back in our school district a month and I anticipate that happening again. I guess we'll all see what happens.

but that does little to help with the stress/fear/anger of having your boss shrug at your approved remote learning letter from HR because she ain’t shit.

She teaches at a vocational school that buses kids in from like a half-dozen cities/towns, and the rule had been if any city is in "red" status, school would be remote only.

But now every city/town in the area is red. Like the rest of the country, shit is way worse now than it was in September.

So, like, why is it okay to go back in person now if September was a no go?

Shit is ridiculous.

I guess since my Thanksgiving is just me and my parents this year I hadn't considered the fact that a lot of people are still gathering with extended family and what not.

so they are going to have large gatherings

and my wife’s kids are still hanging out while claiming they all fucked up and depressed in virtual classes when it comes to doing work but then casually admit they chill with friends.

It’s going to be a mess.

and I feel for people who have been impacted financially by this shut down.

Shit is fucked up IMO. We can go to the grocery store, target, etc but a small shop can’t open cause???

But these kids.. that’s a totally different animal. These kids don’t give a damn and will spread it to teachers quick af.

Thought it was weird seeing pro-choice signs in the same group of protesters holding Trump 2020 signs but then I realized what the sign was about and laughed at how oblivious these idiots are to hypocrisy/self-awareness.

Some kids in person, some virtual. She texted today that they may be stopping in person until January and I really hope so. This country is fucking dumb

my granddaughter is still enrolled in nc. her school does in person and remote and gave us the option because her needs are different. I imagine they’ll force her back in, the teachers don’t want to do both.

are daycares open?

as a student.

Roy Cooper spoke today but he didn’t say shit.

Our daycare closed because they didn’t have numbers. Daycares are open tho. We haven’t even tried to attempt to get into a new one yet.

Can’t trust it.

She may want to create her own virtual course(s). The stress alone will force her to use those medical benefits..the freedom and relief will give her more time to create/design the life she wants. Just my opinion.

Which is a good enough reason to keep them closed to me. Teaching isn’t meant to be a life endangering job.

But studies, so far, have shown that pre-school and elementary school kids aren’t spreading it to each other in a significant way. When young kids that are in school catch the disease, it’s overwhelmingly from the people they live with.

We have the luxury of keeping ours at home and socially distancing in general until the vaccine hits but the push to open the schools up (and therefore everything else ) is going to be very strong by spring so we’re starting to think about what our strategy will be.

Virtual learning means you’re going to lose so many kids that don’t have the parental support to make sure they’re doing what they need to do. We’re no longer talking a few months here. This is going on a year of this shit.

History will judge the “leaders” who didn’t do shit about this pandemic so harshly.

she's being forced to make a choice; not forced to come back to the building..

i hope you both are able to make the best choice for your family...so sorry you're having to go through this
